HC Deb 03 June 1924 vol 174 cc1059-60
47. Mr. MOREL

asked the Prime Minister if he will state when the Government will grant a day, after the Whitsuntide Recess, for the discussion of the Motion standing in. the name of the hon. Member for Dundee and other hon. Members—["That, in the opinion of this House, no diplomatic arrangement or understanding with a foreign State involving, directly or indirectly, national obligations shall be concluded without the consent, of Parliament, and no preparations fey co-operation in, war between the naval, military, or air staffs and the naval, military, or air staffs of a foreign State shall be lawful unless consequent upon such arrangement or understanding; and this Resolution shall be communicated to all States with which we are in diplomatic relations and to the League of Nations,"]


I regret that the exigencies of Parliamentary business make it impossible for the Government to grant a day for such a discussion, without sacrificing time urgently required for the consideration of their programme of social legislation.

Lieut. - Commander KENWORTHY

Could not the Government grant one extra day for this very vital question?
